Brussels sprouts, developed in Belgium in the 16th-century, and a member of the cabbage family, are loaded with vitamins, and a food of demonstrated effectiveness in cancer protection, in particular breast and prostate cancers. This way of preparing it does not only preserve such cancer-fighting properties, but is usually appreciated even by those who thought they didn't like brussels sprouts.

Ingredients

7 Brussels sprouts, cut in half or quartered 180 g
1/2 shallots, finely chopped 20 g
1 tbsp canola oil 15 mL
1/2 cup chicken broth 125 mL
1/2 tbsp marjoram, fresh, chopped 4 g
2 tbsp creamy soy preparation for cooking 30 mL
2 tbsp pine nuts [optional] 16 g
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Method

  1. Prepare the vegetables: cut the sprouts in half (or into quarters, if large) and chop the shallot(s) finely.
  2. Heat half the oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add the nuts and sauté until golden, about 3 min, with constant stirring, taking care not to let them burn. Transfer the nuts to a small bowl and set aside.
  3. Add the sprouts to the pan and cook 2 min, with stirring, then pour in the broth, cover, and simmer until the sprouts are almost tender, about 7 min. Uncover and simmer until the broth evaporates, about 7 min.
  4. In the meantime, heat the remaining oil in a small pan over medium-low heat. Add the shallot(s) and sauté until tender, about 2 min. Transfer the shallots to the pan with the sprouts, then stir in the chopped marjoram and soy preparation. Cook over low heat, stirring frequently, about 3 min. Add salt and pepper. Mix in the pine nuts then serve.
